I picked up issue 15 of Fast Company while enjoying a weekend getaway in Pacific Grove. Actually it rained most of that weekend, but there was a nice mom-and-pop bookstore nearby, and our room had a great fireplace and the B&B served afternoon wine and cheese–all great for a good read. Soon thereafter I took a subscription to the magazine and have found it to contain valuable articles over the years.
Fast Company does me a great service with their complete, searchable content archive, and the following FC articles still hold my interest:
- FC15: Keep It Simple
